For the past several weeks, seniors who did not get their pictures taken over the summer have been asked to sign up for a make-up time on Tuesday, Oct 21 and Wednesday, Oct 22.
Due to technical issues, the Wednesday, Oct 22 make-up date has been cancelled and all senior make-up pictures will occur Tuesday, October 21 from 8:00 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.
Seniors originally assigned to Wednesday, Oct 22 have been assigned a new “sitting” time for Tuesday, Oct. 21.
Please remind your student to check by the yearbook table at lunch for his or her new appointment time. In addition, all senior teachers will post schedules in their classrooms.

Blithe Spirit is a comedy by Noel Coward. The story is about a man Charles Condomine, an author and his current wife, Ruth. Charles is writing a new book about mediums so he invites Madame Arcati, a local medium for dinner and a séance so he can study her. Unbeknownst to Madame Arcati, Charles and Ruth don't believe in mediums and think her to be a harmless fake. But during the séance Charles' first wife Elvira comes through but only Charles can see and hear her. This leads to many comic misinterpretations. This is a fun and lighthearted comedy.
Show dates are October 16th - 18th at 7:30 in the Nation Ford Auditorium. Ticket sold at the door. $8 students and $10 standard. There will be a Student Rush Friday October 17th for only $5 for students.
